Wasting resources, the final “straws”

First posted in January 2021. We are still a long way from the mindset change that individuals and societies need to make in terms of resource usage on a finite planet.

Marketing and advertising and the wasting of resources go hand in hand in the 21st century. These cranes I think had clearly been signposted with the site name that they were working on but why? Because they could. The cost of doing so was in the local currency, it might have even been tax deductible but there was no associated cost to the environment. OK you might say it’s some materials on a one way trip to landfill or burning but it’s not much. Unfortunately it is though. It may only look like a “straw” to you but there are 7,800,000,000 of us all using “straws” that are often unnecessary and therefore part of the over use of natural resources that humanity extracts from the natural world at every moment. Earth Overshoot Day gets earlier every year. Make sure you consider the environmental cost of what you use and not just its monetary cost.
